2-3 strips is "normal". A person wanting a "plenty of bacon" would therefore expect at least 4 with no definable upper limit without more info on the gluttonous appetite of the individual involved.

Note that very hard working people in the old days ate a surprisingly large number of calories with fatty meats like bacon being a good, dense source. Modern people should eat maybe 1/2 to 1/3 of what a John Wayne cowboy-like character would eat.
